Known as the rider that had more spin variations than anyone, Collin was one of the first proponents of proper grabs and legit tricks. He was vocal about the gymnastic state of the sport of wakeboarding around the turn of the millenium and backed up his opinion with non-inverted riding that was blowing minds. Collin was snapping out grabs halfway through a switch heelside 540, then linking it to a perfect wake-to-wake melon backside 540, followed up by back to back toeside backside 360's with perfect grabs. He stood out like sore thumb in the time when S-Bends and ungrabbed back mobes were king, but it was a refreshing, visionary sore thumb. Collin's riding impacts even riders today who may not have even heard of him, but the first guy linking back to back switch and regular tech spins can see his influence felt in kids chasing back to back toeside 900's.
